Sportswomen's Apparel in the United States

Sportswomen's Apparel in the United States

By Linda K. Fuller



This volume presents a collection of essays that explore the relationship between sporting clothing and gender. Drawing on uniform and sports apparel as a means of exploring the socio-sexual politics of contemporary US society, the contributions analyse the historical, political-economic, socio-cultural and sport-specific dimensions of gendered clothing in sport. Part of a two-volume series (the other discussing this phenomenon in a global context), contributors cover topics such as WNBA uniform politics, military promotion, female sportscaster clothing, magazine depictions, plus-size exercise apparel, FloJo, the Skirt Chaser 5k race, and the socio-politics of the LPGA, CrossFit, roller derby, rock climbing, and more.  As the first single compendium to discuss American sportswomen's apparel, this collection will be of interest to practitioners and scholars of sports history, the sociology of sport, and gender/media studies.
